    Default cut back on the number of forum topic

    Should the number of forum cut back some? There are 8 forums for cichlids. Is this necessary? If the number of forum are reduced, I think the remaining forums will increase in viewing traffic and hopefully more useful response.

    I don't see an issue with the way it is currently setup. As a newbie to the hobby, it really helps to see them broken down like that.
    40 gallon FW -1 male halfmoon betta named Max, 2 GBR's (Peter and Lois) who better clean up their act, 11neon tetras (damn GBR's killed one), 12 black neon tetras, 2 assassin snails, and 1 albino BN pleco named Tiberius.

    I'm not sure how cutting back on the number of forum topics would increase useful information. Most questions posed here are very specific as most issues are very specific.
    When I first joined I found it very helpful to have all the categories and threads and the search function that often led me to my particular issue before I even had to post a question. There's a lot of combined knowledge out here ... I tap it regularly even after 2 years on the forum.
    I hope you will find the set up useful too.
    30 g FW planted:corys, female ABNP, blue angel, harleys, zebra danios, rummies,
    15 g FW planted:2 male guppies, neons, pygmy corys, clown pleco, 4 types of shrimp, assassin snails

    It makes it easier to find the information as it is now. The reason that there are many cichlid forums is that cichlids are very popular andthere are many aquarists that tend to keep mainly one type of cichlids.
    Do as I say. Not as I do.

    Heck I was going to suggest a seperate topic for Corydorus Catfish.

    Just a thought. For instance I know we have a subforum for fish compatibility and cycling, but a lot those topic are posted under general aquarium forum. There is a forum for technical, but i see a lot of those topic under tank setup. Even some of the technical question are posted up general aquarium. Also, what is the different between the buy and sell forum and the classified subforum?

    It appears to me that the buy & sell forum shows categories that one can post things in and keeps a history of what people have posted, whereas the classifieds show the most recent offerings.

    I also agree that the many subforums are useful, especially when one is seeking info on specific things - some of the species specific forums have "stickies" with info that can be read - if a question isn't answered, then the person can post a question.

    I believe the buy/sell and classified sections are being worked on

    Breaking down the topics is always helpful and any information can easily be looked for...

    One major advantage of this site over other forums is that it has a vast amount of knowledge and that too easily searchable.

    I love AC, Helped me a lot to be successful in this hobby so far.. and will always help to find out new things..

    Granted I am a newbie to this forum, so take it for what its worth....The first thing I thought when joining this forum was, "Dang there are a lot of individual forums! And a "newbie" like myself can be overwhelmed at times compared to other forums that might go for the "less is more" route. The one thing the AC has that others don't is the people in the forum..lots of great info, lots of great folks..I just need to put my waders on get down in it. ;-)

    Its not the amount of info here that counts, but those who give it!

    thanks for all the info AC!
